Suggested Learning Experiences

The Healthy Schools approach has been designed to run alongside a core PE programme. This enables more effective support for pupils’ understanding of the importance of an active lifestyle and helps to develop skills associated with habitual physical activity.

Large Space

  • Provide the children with the opportunity to engage in a range of daily physical activity sessions including playground games/outdoor learning.
  • Provide an active playground programme/range of playground games/equipment.
  • Observe/record children taking part in a range of fitness challenges and daily physical activity sessions.

Small Space

  • Set simple daily fitness challenges eg. hopping for 20seconds – recording progress each day for a week.
  • Talk about different ways they can be active in school/at home.
  • Become involved in local/national campaigns to promote physical activity eg, Walk to School Week/ Sponsored ‘Wheelie’ events etc.
  • Talk about how they can improve their activity levels at home eg, less time watching tv; less time playing games consoles etc.
  • Involve parents in recording eg diary log of activities they do as a family for a week – use diaries to set simple targets to improve activity levels.
  • Create posters to promote active behaviour both in and out of school.
  • Plan an active parent/child session to allow parents and children to learn how they can be active together and to promote activities they can reinforce at home.
